A two-day masterclass for those who have some experience of Eco-printing, working with both fabric. Using a selection of different fabrics, participants will learn about the process of Eco printing, the types of leaves which produce the best results and the different ways in which the leaves can be processed. They will have the opportunity to work with a variety of mordants which can radically alter the outcomes of the prints.
At the end of the two days it is anticipated that students will go away with a great selection of samples and some ideas about how to take the techniques further. Caroline provides all the equipment, mordants, dyes etc. but not fabric.
